There will be quite a bunch of us from here. It is both Saturday and Sunday. usually opens I think around 9am till 4-5pm. Mike Moore will have his portable tracks there, Tom Boldler may be there with his track. There will also be an electric track owned by Clem of Warrior Run. Runtime is based on time slots, you can sign up for 30 min slots.

More people will probally post here on if they will be there.

I don't know what happened to my post, but the answer is yes it is President's Day Weekend. COME ON DOWN and run your Ruby Mike. Plenty of guys to help you out and etc. Bring water, erl, and fuel and have fun.

Jane and I will be at the Trolley Museum Saturday but not bringing our portable track this time. We have a special visitor arriving Sunday so have to be home then.
Usually Mike's big track has the sign up board but the smaller tracks don't. Perhaps we can persuade Scott McDonald to bring his track to supplement Mike's for the smaller locos. Ulterior motive time; I'd like to see how Scott built it.
See you there,
Tom

Errr... Jason, I wouldn't arrive too early. Â*But you can come on Monday, too.

As your holiday guests are “Rediscovering Scranton,” be sure to tell them about the Electric City Trolley Museum. This organization will be hosting large-scale train displays Presidents’ Day weekend, February 17-19, 2007 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. During this weekend, the Pennsylvania Garden Railway Society and Warrior Run Loco Works will be on hand with feature exhibitors. Visitors from all over the country will visit the Electric City Trolley Museum Presidents’ Day Weekend. For more information regarding the Electric City Trolley Museum visit www.ectma.org.


Incidentally, that's from the Electric City website www.electriccityr.com. There's nothing on the Trolley Museum website, as usual. (I sent them a complaint!)

Warrior Run's layout is electric but usually runs battery-r/c locos, depending on who's there (in other words, track power is not always available.) I'm thinking of bringing my RYM EBT Mikado, unless someone else is bringing one? Â*I'll be there Sunday (sorry I'll miss you, Tom.)

Mike Moore (Aikenback Live Steamers) has the large portable live steam layout that you can see on the photos from Cabin Fever just last month. Bring your Ruby and ask someone where you sign up. Â*Not sure how the PLS gets involved.

I went to one of these steam ups a few years ago, and it was great to see operating steam in Scranton!! (Oops! hope no one from Steamtown gets mad about that one!)

Sure - I can bring it up!

Quite a load Scott,
Jane and I will arrive Friday evening and see you Saturday. I'm bringing three Regners; Willi disguised as a Falk, Konrad Cab Forward with animal park tram and Lumberjack sewage works loco... maybe too whimsical for some. Looking forward to seeing friends who chose Cabin Fever over Diamondhead.
Have fun,
Tom
